Notes

Pitch Correction:
-- SBD pitch and speed correction performed in Samplitude Pro ver 7.22
-- the tape speed difference between SBD and AUD reels is variable and it slews
-- some tracks were manually pitch-corrected into many segments
-- some tracks were pitch-corrected into two segments
-- some tracks were pitch-corrected in one segment
-- Resample Mode was used to perform pitch and speed correction

Matrix Mixing:
-- track changes are seamless
-- sources fade-in and fade-out
-- remastered and rendered in Samplitude Pro VIP mode
-- AUD source is mixed -1.5dB below SBD source

Patches and Repairs:
d1t01 - Promised Land - AUD source fades in at 0:42
d1t02 - Deal - SBD right channel - parametric eq used to lower Garcia's guitar level - 3:35 to 4:05
d2t04 - He's Gone - AUD tape damage patched - 6:25 to 6:37
d2t06 - Truckin' - AUD missing due to reel flip - 8:08 to 9:03
d2t07 - Playin' in the Band - unable to match sources after 9:28 - SBD only after 9:28
d3t07 - Sugar Magnolia - SBD cuts out at 5:40; AUD only after 5:40

Splendid matrix, although the juxtaposition of the snappy SBD and the echo from the delay towers is slightly too weird at times. Has to be one of the Dead's all-time greatest shows. Phil's lead vocal on Box is jaw-dropping, as is the Truckin' jam and lots of other bits, and when you're not gaping in disbelief you'll be boogiein'. Slight set list error in description: set 1 ends with Tennessee Jed, not 3 songs later.

Big gratitude to Monte Barry, tons of work to make this matrix. And one of the very great shows.
